How many of us are actually aware that Tamil is the oldest surviving language? India is the melting pot of many languages and cultures, yet the Tamil Language was first to receive the ‘semmozhi’ recognition. 

It is believed that 20,000 years ago, along with the ruin of Kumari civilisation, the Tamil language has lost priceless literary treasures as evidenced by modern historians. However, the beautiful language has managed to survive thousands of years and is still widely spoken around the world.

Despite calling Tamil their mother tongue, it is unfortunate that many of our own people are still unaware of the greatness of the language. Check out the video below to learn about the origin and historical marvels of Tamil:
